The Earthly Paradise
This is the first of four old Norman carols translated and arranged by Harvey Bartlett Gaul (1881-1945), American composer and musician, who was for many years organist of Calvary Episcopal Church in Pittsburgh. They were published in 1913 and are now in the public domain in the USA. The translations are not uniformly good, but the first and third one are extremely fine.
